  1. if this snail with smooth shell , but the shape is exactly same, what kind of species is that?

    I am by no means an expert on snails, but this species strongly resembles (from what I can tell) a Faunus species. The most well-known species is Faunus ater, and you can see the resemblance by looking at images. Hope this helps! If not, try looking here: http://www.allesumdieschneck.de/html/cerithioidea.html. This is a very useful website for getting an idea of what snail species you have!
